Doc Holliday makes changes to Marshall coaching staff

A gaping hole was left in the Marshall coaching staff when the team lost assistant coach Mike Furrey last month. The wide receivers coach left the team after accepting an offer for the head coaching position at Limestone College in South Carolina.

With the upcoming season no longer far away, Doc Holliday is making his final adjustments to his 2016 coaching staff.

Marshall has confirmed that Todd Goebbel, last season’s tight ends coach, will now become the team’s wide receivers coach. This is nothing new to Goebbel, as he coached receivers for the Herd from 2005-2009. Goebbel will also keep his position as the team’s recruiting coordinator this season.

But, the moving of Goebbel is not the only tweak in the coaching staff.

On Wednesday, the Thundering Herd confirmed the report that former Div. III Catholic University of America head coach Dave Dunn had been hired on to the Marshall staff. Dunn will be assuming the position of tight ends coach for the Herd this season, which will also be his first coaching job at the FBS level.

“Dave brings a wealth of experience to our staff, including the last 11 as a college head coach,” Holliday stated. “We are excited for him and his family to get started here and to be part of the Huntington community.”
